Absent but not gone…. like a Roomba mentally traveling in circles

October 29, 2017

…this morning the temperature here in Texas was in the low 40’s, reminding me of a nice spring day back in Alaska, as I once again sit at my keyboard and let my mind drift over possible topics for a posting, however much like a Roomba it just traveled in circles bumping into potential topics and then backing away from them. So do to of this lack of inspiration I will fall back on an old standby and just write brief thoughts about some of the myriad of subjects that my mind ‘bumped’ into.

The Roomba and my mind still banging into walls

JFK…. So now we have thousands of more documents relating to the assassination of President Kennedy, but not one iota closer to some new revelation on the murder. After glancing at the papers released and listening to a number of talk show’s I have come to wonder why those documents were ever classified. If anyone in the public sector thought that they would find anything revealing or a possibility that Oswald was part of a conspiracy and that there was someone else involved in the shooting then they probably live in one of those states that have legalized pot.

DNC & Clinton vs Trump…. After millions of tax dollars spent and almost a year of investigations into a Russian connection with President Trump and we still have absolutely no hard evidence and not the vaguest of charges have been brought against the President we are handed for free a verifiable link between the DNC, Hillary Clinton and the Russians. You have to wonder what all those millions of tax dollars were spent on.

Catalonia a new nation…. We have become used to the emergence of new territories or the change-over of the USSR from the former Soviet Republic to the Russia Federation or the many name changes for countries on the continent of Africa, but in Spain we are witness to the power of the people where in Northeastern Spain they voted to secede and create their own nation Catalonia. Yes I know many of you are saying so what that’s happening on the other side of the world and has nothing to do with me, well you may be wrong, because a large number of voters in California are gathering a petition to secede from the U.S.. Again I can hear some of you saying so what, there are many states where groups of people want to secede it will never get off the ground. Well from what I can see by the fact that Attorney General Xavier Becerra has granted representatives from CalExit the authorization to put a referendum about California seceding from the United States on the 2018 ballot, things are getting seruious. However those who want to leave our union might do well to watch what is happening over in Spain where the Madrid government sacked Catalonia’s president and dismissed its parliament, then again I wouldn’t mind seeing California’s drain on our tax dollars become a “personal” Calexit problem!

Democrat or republican the opposite side of the same coin…. Do you remember when the democratic’s were passing oboma-care and fellow congressman were told you have to pass the bill before you can read it? Well the coin was flipped with the majority now in republican hands but…… you guessed it today we learn that the new tax bill set to be released in days is shrouded in secrecy. Word is that this secrecy is because the powers to be do not want to be influenced by special interest groups, or would that be (special interest groups not financially supporting those writing the bill)? So once again politicians tell us they have to pass a bill before we see how it effects us!

Political correctness still running amok…. In keeping with the national fervor to label anything one disagrees with as not politically correct a historic Episcopal church in Virginia will remove a pair of plaques memorializing George Washington and Robert E Lee. This continual escalation of rampant political correctness is now reaching out to not only to historical figures from the civil war, but the founder’s of our nation. I have to wonder if it continues what will our nations history look like in a decade. Will our children be focusing on the fact that the men who created this nation also had slaves or that it is a nation which was built by flawed men on a framework of freedom and one which literally millions of people from other nations can only dream about.

My mental Roombaing aside
I have to ask
if this nation is so offensive to minorities
why are so many
leaving their own countries
and trying so hard to stay here?

    I think the Roomba effect is because ALL of your topics you touched base on are worth having conversations about.
